From oh, no no no to ho ho ho

Freight software specialist ASM says it has “saved Christmas” with a new module designed to help importers cope with Customs’ new LVBI (Low Value Bulked Imports) procedures. These mainly affect items worth between £15 and £135, which covers many of the goods bought online, and which now have to be declared as separate items on an import declaration.

ASM says that by constantly monitoring upcoming regulations and changes affecting the industry it immediately recognised the impact this would have for its customers. Working closely with a large global e-commerce customer, ASM came up with a solution to the problem in a matter of weeks.

This new integration module for the ASM Sequoia Customs Clearance platform automatically uploads the data for e-commerce shipments straight from the shipper into a worksheet from where the LVBI customs declarations can be automatically completed.
